Kesha’s early life was messy and unpredictable. It didn’t help that her father was a truck driver and constantly on the road. But other circumstances also conspired to give her a very unhappy childhood.
“I always felt like an outsider at home and at school,” says Kesha. “I was desperately lonely and often misunderstood.” This emotional pain led her to search for self-worth in all the wrong places. Although her mother had planted a seed of faith in her heart, Kesha opted for parties and promiscuity instead of a life surrendered to Jesus. By the age of 15, she was pregnant with her first child. At age 17, she had her second. And from the ages of 18 to 23, she continued to ignore the tug in her spirit that was trying to lead her back to Christ. Soon Kesha fell in love with a man who turned violently abusive.
As he was relentlessly beating her one night, she suddenly remembered there was Someone who could come to her aid and save her from this destructive life. “That night, I felt every beating as if it was in slow motion,” she recalls. “I could clearly see the danger my kids and I were in.” Kesha knew she needed to escape. But how? Finally, she gathered the courage to leave her boyfriend. “It was one of the hardest decisions I’ve ever had to make,” she says. “Although I knew I needed to get away from him, at first I felt lost without him.”
A Brand-New Life
Little did Kesha realize at the time, but God was waiting right around the corner with open arms and a brand-new life for her.
One of the first blessings was when her childhood best friend surprisingly stepped into the picture and proposed just six months later. This loving, God-fearing man, who had been there for Kesha during her darkest times, became the protector and provider she and her children longed for. God even used their relationship to heal her heart from the past abuse.
The second change occurred when God took an event that could have been devastating, and turned it into something good. One day she and her family were involved in a horrific car accident. But instead of facing serious injuries, each one of them climbed out of the car – without a scratch!
Kesha realized she had been saved by God for a reason. At that moment, the Lord gave her a new calling and purpose: to become a life coach and help others discover God’s best for themselves!
Kesha’s testimony has empowered her to encourage the broken hearts and crushed spirits of many people. “Everything I’ve done wrong, God is using for good!” she marvels. “It’s as if He’s put all my mistakes and life lessons into a beautiful treasure chest. Whenever I coach someone now, I’m able to hand them my treasures, so they realize they’re not alone.”
Getting Refilled and Refreshed
Recognizing her need to continually be filled to overflowing, Kesha regularly watches Inspiration TV to find strength and inspiration in helping others.
“I can’t tell you how many times Inspiration TV has encouraged me,” she says gratefully. “I love being able to watch it on my cell phone wherever I am and whenever I need it!”
